Evangeline is the epic tale of one woman's search for her lost love. In the tumult of the Acadian expulsion from Canada, Evangeline Bellefontaine is separated from her beloved Gabriel Lajeunesse. As she journeys across the United States, she anxiously tries to find a trace of Lajeunesse, without success. Years go by and Evangeline despairs of ever seeing her love's face again. But when all hope seems gone, the couple is given one final chance to reunite... One of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's most famous long poems, Evangeline is a hauntingly beautiful tribute to the endurance of love.
